wu - make a plot of what's up in the sky RW Wilson & MW Pound
wu xl:[170,190] st:3 make a plot of whatever is transiting
at LST 3:00. Use the default source file.
wu l:30 hr:17 fn:"mycat" make a plot for latitude 30 degrees and
LST 17:00, using the source file "mycat"
in the current working directory.
wu yr:1776 See what was up a long time ago.
wu reads source name coordinates from a file (default:
$COMB/lib/stars) and plots them on the screen. The user
can specify azimuth and elevation limits, sidereal time,
epoch, and latitude. The format for a source catalog is
Source_Name RA DEC VLSR Epoch_of_Coords
where RA and DEC are in sexagesimal or decimal notation. This format
may eventually change to be the same as the format used by the
AT&T-BL 7-m control program.
The year defaults to the current year, including the fractional portion.
